Josh Michael

Dean of Library Services; Asst. Professor of Library Science


Josh joined the library in June 2013 and will be connecting library resources with nursing and pharmacology students. He has worked in libraries as a student assistant, public services librarian, and director since 2001. Josh is married to a fellow CU graduate and they have four sons who enjoy making lots of noise and running amuk. He grew up in Maryland and loved living in Washington state during seminary. He is insufferable on anything about the Civil War and often pretentious about The New Yorker. He is misguided enough to continue running despite a clear lack of any real ability. Also, he spends a lot of the day thinking about food.
